- First things first. Click here for a quick rundown of some of the best or most important news from voiceofsandiego.org in August.
- As reported in This Just In, Minneapolis StarTribune editor and publisher Joel Kramer announced the creation of MinnPost.com, a nonprofit daily modeled after voiceofsandiego.org.
- Education reporter and Web whiz Vlad Kogan left Voice last week to pursue a prestigious doctorate program at UCSD. Vlad was an amazing addition to the Voice team, and we wish him well in graduate school.
- Scott Lewis dodged a bullet this week when 10News reporter Marti Emerald officially announced her intention to run for City Council. While Emerald’s statement came as no surprise, disappointment was palpable in the Voice office as reporters realized Lewis wouldn’t be running through Civic Center Plaza in a Scooby-Doo outfit as they’d hoped.

- Lastly, Andrew Donohue is set to appear on Editor’s Roundtable Friday to discuss the Labor Day melee at Pacific Beach and Kevin Faulconer’s proposed alcohol ban. Should be an interesting discussion.
